“Great for a stay in the city center”
Reviewed 28 January 2011

My husband and I just returned from a two week trip in South Africa. We spent our first night at the Holiday Inn Express. The location was within close walking distance to shops and great restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised to have a great view of Table Mountain from our room. The room was a little small, but had all of the standard comforts. There was a great buffet breakfast included in the rate. It is a wonderful option if you are looking for a budget hotel accommodation.

I stayed at the hotel for 7 nights. They gave me a room on the 14th floor with table mountain view. That alone was excellent. The room was nice, plenty of space and an excellent bathroom. The plus over any typical Holiday Inn Express was the breakfast buffet, which was not the expected plastic dishes and cuttlery version but rather close to a classy Intercontinental Hotel breakfast buffet. Service in the restaurant is perfect, even if it get's crowded you won't miss anything. I was particularly amazed about how friendly and helpful the stuff was, no matter who you were dealing with. This is a rather new place to be recommend in Cape Town.

This is a fairly new hotel. It is very close to Green Market Square. Very basic and functional. The bathroom door swings to enclose the toilet. Brand new white towels, hair dryer and basic amenities. Tea kettle with coffee, tea, sugar and milk. No refrigerator. Large safe. Nice breakfast with all sorts of pastries, eggs, bacon, chesses, yogurt, etc, etc. News paper free for Priority members. The location is very central and not a good place to walk at night. We had a twin room so it gave us a little more room. Hate the duvet system they don’t have separate sheets. The wind makes a lot of noise as it goes between the buildings. We were on the 10th floor and if you look to the side you can see Table Mountain but you don’t really have a view. They gave us a 30 minute free internet, after that it is very expensive. There is an internet café down the street for 5 rand an hour. We took the hop on hop off and went to Table Mountain first. You can get the tickets on line at half price so get them first. Then we got off at the water front and had lunch there. Got back on the bus and finished the tour. On the second day we took a walking tour from the tourist office. The guy was knowledgeable but was doing the tour in both German and English and it gets pretty annoying after a while. Went to the company gardens and walked over to the Nelson to see the famous hotel. Walked down from Long Street where the young people hang out. The next day we took a Township tour and got a good view on how the other half lives. It was interesting and very sad. We went with Thabang Titotti @zizwe tours even though we purchase it as Camissa tours from the tourist office. He at one time came from a township and knew a lot of the people around. Had lunch in Kloof street and took a taxi ($50.00 both ways to down town) to Kristenbosh Gardens. What a contrast! We felt safe walking around the touristy city during the day but were careful not to stray.

This hotel looks great, very modern and very nice quality rooms. Used this hotel as a stopover for the blue train and was a great location to explore the city in the evening. The hotel offers wifi free for 30 minutes and chargeable thereafter. Didn't have the breakfast so cannot comment on that. The major disadvantage we found was the noisy lifts. It sounds like a gale is rushing through the building as the lifts rise and fall. Eventually got used to this but took a while to get to sleep. We we in a room on its own to the right as you exit the lifts.
